As much of a mobile revolution as Safari on the iPhone was, the browser isn’t for everyone. Just as there are choices on the desktop, there are now plenty of options on iOS for a different mobile browser -- and one of the latest for the iPad has hit the App Store with a slick new update.
ReaddleDocs gives your phone a robust Documents folder that lets you do everything you need to do with important files, including edit and save, rename, move, copy, archive, mail and store -- and it supports everything from PDF to image files and web pages, as well as all your word processing documents.
If there’s one iOS developer who continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the iPad, it would have to be Readdle. This week, the company released an update to their popular PDF Expert app, adding the ability to stamp PDF files -- a feature usually only found in expensive desktop programs such as Adobe Acrobat.
Why should your iPad have all the fun? That’s what developer Readdle is asking this week as the company rolls out PDF Expert 2.0, a major new version of their iPhone edition which brings feature parity with the iPad edition, including text highlighting, form filling and much more.
If you frequently use PDF documents and an iPad in your daily life, you’ve likely discovered Readdle’s popular PDF Expert, which recently added the ability to edit PDF forms to its many tricks. This week, a new update extends the app’s power even further.
Sure, your iOS device comes with a calendar built in and on the iPad it's phenomenally gorgeous, but Apple's helpful app is a little less than helpful. For instance, syncing. If we had something entered on the desktop iCal, it would be great if it would sync to our iPhones or iPads without us having to dig out our cords, plug them into our devices and our computers, fire up iTunes, click on Sync, and sit around twiddling our thumbs -- or if we didn't have to shell out a hundred bucks a year for a MobileMe subscription. Wireless syncing would be an awesome way to resolve some of this, but maximum flexibility and syncability is what we're after. Enter Google Calendars and the apps that supersize it.
By itself, Google Calendars accessed by browser on your iOS device is even weaker than Apple's options. Stripped down to its essence, the interface is not attractive and is pretty limited in what you can do. Sure, you can move from mobile view to desktop view and gain more functionality -- but this works best on an iPad. We want the world and we want it now.
